SIRVA is a painful condition that has been reported following administration of the flu vaccine and other inoculations.

In recent years, the federal government’s Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting database has experienced a surge in SIRVA reports.
SIRVA was added to the NVICP’s Vaccine Injury Table in 2017. Even before that, however, the Program was paying out a growing number of claims involving the condition.
The seasonal flu vaccine is one of the most common causes of SIRVA, given that it is administered annually in the deltoid muscle of the arm.
The NVICP provides compensation to those who have been harmed by vaccines. To date, the program has paid more than $3.9 billion in compensation to victims of vaccine-related injuries.
If you developed SIRVA following a flu vaccine or other vaccine, please call (888) 994-5118 to discuss your case with a member of our legal team.
